CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte says the Obama administration is wrong to bring a recently captured son-in-law of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida spokesman to court in New York.

In a Washington news conference Thursday with fellow Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Ayotte said the Obama administration's lack of a war-time detention policy for foreign members of al-Qaida, as well as its refusal to detain and interrogate them at Guantanamo Bay, makes the nation less safe.

Ayotte said military detention for enemy combatants has been the rule, not the exception.

She said a foreign member of al-Qaida should never be treated like a common criminal and should never hear the words, "You have a right to remain silent."
